The quality is pretty good. A lot of my dresses are still like brand new. They are super stretchy and may be a bit short for a taller person, but they pair great with leggings!
When you are plus-size, you may hear how you should wear dark colors. "They are slimming," people say. Well...I say, "Screw that!" Put some light and fun color into your life!
